Washington, D.C. -- The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) and Round Rock, Texas-based Dell computers have announced their partnership in developing a "Best Practices for Computer Recycling" report for computer recycling with U.S. recycling professionals.

The report and an outreach tool kit are for municipal and university recycling coordinators. The companies also plan to pilot a special two-day training for recycling coordinators that includes hands-on management of a computer recycling collection event at a major university.

Currently, Dell has collected more than 700 tons of unwanted computer equipment for donation and recycling this year during its Dell Recycling National Tour.
